COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Old time brewers in Germany made a malty, high gravity beer in March (Maerzen) which they consumed with great ceremony in the fall. The coincidence of a royal betrothal in the autumn of 1810 gave Bavarian beer lovers ample justification for the two-week long bash known as Oktoberfest.

Cletus (6368) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 21, 2008
Growler courtesy of JB175. Pours copper with a reddish tint and a nice sustained white head. Smells of caramel, dough, wildflowers, light tea. Tastes spicy and lightly bitter with a touch of citrus and a dry malty finish.

Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
Clear medium amber, small white cover. Strikingly grainy nose, remotely bready and toasty as well, but the graininess does not have the usual freshness I associate with vienna malts and thus contrasts more than complement the rather hoppy nature, mostly focusing on bitterness than finishing aromas. Unusual..

3.6
Rciesla (5607) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 18, 2009
Draft. Pours a dark golden hazy body with a thin off white head. Yeast y body with some spicy notes, floral tones, tea like bitterness and a bread y dough y finish. Good stuff especially for the style.

3.7
Dickinsonbeer (5073) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - OCT 22, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2010 Newtown Brewfest 06. Pours a nice clear orangey amber with a nice fluffy white head and good lace. Aroma is toasted and munich malts, bready lightly nutty and has a nice clean assertive noble hop character. Clean bready and malty flavor with full toasted malts, light caramel sweetness cut with an herbal hop bitterness in the finish. This was a good Oktoberfest.

3.5
TomDecapolis (4636) - Milton, Delaware, USA - OCT 22, 2005
Pours a translucent lighter amber with a small off white lacing head. Aroma is roasted malts with some floral hops and citrus. Different than other Oktoberfests I’ve had, but nice. Flavor is toasty malts up front with sweet citrus in the tail. Well done Oktoberfest.

3.3
tiggmtl (4543) - East York, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 12, 2005
Thick, chewy, bready, malt forward aroma. Clear copper brown body with a low off white head that recedes to partial cover and ring. Malty sweet bready flavour with some lavender and floral flavoured hops and low finishing bitterness. Medium body with smooth texture and lively effervescence. Sampled on tap at the Pennsylvania location of the brewpub with beerbuzzmontreal, MartinT, Rastacouere and Yowie.

3.6
CanIHave4Beers (4226) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Pours a deep crimson color with a medium to small head. Aroma is rosty and grainy malt with some caramel and some noble hops. The flavor has some roasted nuts and some herbal bitterness, very dry and very tasty.

3.3
beerbill (3618) - Laurel, New York, USA - OCT 7, 2007
On tap at their New Hope brewpub. Pours crystal clear amber with a moderate off-white head that was gone after a few sips. Pleasant aroma of caramel and malt. Flavor was a bit light with caramel and malt both noted. A bit thin in the mouthfeel. This beer is a bit lighter than most marzens I have sampled thus far.

2.6

Clear copper color with a thin offwhite head. Aroma of malt and bread. Flavor of malt and bread with some unidentified fruit, the finish is bitter. Light body with soft carbonation.
